Bringing Pride to Your Workplace

In the US it is estimated that of the 154.458 million people currently employed, approximately 9.68 million identify as members of the LGBTQ+ population. Additionally, the data tells us that workplaces that are inclusive of gender identity and sexual orientation are one of the top priorities for Millennials and Gen Z. But beyond just saying that you support the LGBTQ+ community, what can you do to demonstrate your organization’s commitment to being inclusive of diverse gender identities and sexual orientations? And in this hyper-competitive job market, how do you ensure that your recruitment, retention, and professional development practices provide the highest level of affirmation and support for LGBTQ+ candidates and colleagues? It’s time to bring pride to your workplace! Summit attendees can anticipate: • Increased awareness of best practices for recruiting and retaining LGBTQ+ associates • Practical tips for designing policies and aligning workplace culture to be affirming and welcoming of all gender identities and sexual orientations • Insights on the how, dos and don’ts, and why of establishing and or growing LGBTQ+ ERGs
